– Liverpool fans have criticized Alisson Becker’s performance against Man City
– The Brazilian goalkeeper gave away two cheap errors that led to two goals
– The Reds are now ten points away from leaders City and one point ahead of Chelsea
Liverpool fans have taken to social media to attack Alisson Becker’s two defensive blunders that helped Man City emerge victorious at Anfield, Daily Mail.
The Citizens under Pep Guardiola have never won a game at Anfield but the story changed when they recorded a 4-1 win over their Premier League rivals.
The Brazilian goalkeeper was at fault for both Ilkay Gundogan and Raheem Sterling’s goals in City’s 4-1 win over Liverpool.
The Brazilian shot-stopper made two poor clearances within the space of three minutes to gift City two goals in the second half.
And fans have compared the 2019 best goalkeeper in the world to former Reds goalie Loris Karius and Man United keeper David de Gea.
Karius made two unforgivable errors during the 2018-19 Champions League finals against Real Madrid that gave the Spanish giants a 3-1 win.
One fan said:
“Alisson didn’t want David de Gea to feel left out after his performance against Everton, so ‘gifted Man City two goals.”
A second fan said:
“Nightmare 2nd half, horror show from Alisson, ruthless City fully expose the errors. Need to regroup and secure top 4 – really all that’s left to salvage from this wretched season.”
Another Liverpool fan claimed Alisson has been taken lightly for his blunders compared to how Jordan Pickford has been criticized for the same mistakes.
Liverpool are now ten points behind Man City on the Premier League table and just a point ahead of Chelsea.
